To minimise cleaning, line the pulp container
with a plastic freezer bag to collect the pulp.
Pulp can then be used for other dishes (see page
R12), or as compost for gardens or discard (see
page 18).
To include the froth with your juice, simply
remove the lid of the juice jug when pouring
juice into the glass.
The Breville BJE410 Juicer is fitted with a safety
device which safeguards against overheating with
excessive loads. If overheating occurs, the juicer
will automatically activate the overload protection
device and the unit will switch itself off. When the
overload protection is activated, unplug the Juicer
from the power outlet for at least 15 minutes to
allow the unit to cool. Then plug juicer into the
power outlet and use as normal.
Step 5
As fruit and vegetables are processed, juice will
flow into the juice jug and the separated pulp
will accumulate in the pulp container.
The pulp container can be emptied during juicing
by turning the Juice Fountain™ Plus ‘Off’ at the
control panel and then carefully removing the
pulp container. Replace empty pulp container
before continuing to juice.
Do not allow the pulp container to overfill as this
may affect the operation of the appliance.
NEVER USE FINGERS TO PUSH FOOD DOWN THE FEED CHUTE OR TO CLEAR THE FEED
CHUTE. ALWAYS USE THE FOOD PUSHER PROVIDED.

Care and cleaning
Ensure the Juice Fountain ™ Plus is turned off
by switching the ‘On/Off’ button on the control
panel to ‘Off’. Then switch the appliance off at
the power outlet and unplug the power cord.
Ensure the Juice Fountain ™ Plus is correctly
disassembled. Refer to disassembling your
Breville Juice Fountain ™ Plus (page 12).
For easier cleaning:
• Clean as you go and avoid dried on juice or
pulp residue.
• Immediately after each use, rinse removable
parts in hot water to remove wet pulp. Allow
parts to air dry.
To minimise cleaning, line the pulp container
with a plastic freezer bag to collect the pulp.
Pulp can then be used for other dishes (see page
R12), or as compost for the garden or discarded.
Care and cleaning continued
Removing stubborn or strong food
stains and odours
Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaners
when cleaning the parts or motor base as they
may scratch the surface.
Discolouration of the plastic may occur with
strongly coloured fruit and vegetables. To help
prevent this, wash parts immediately after use. If
discolouration does occur, the plastic parts can
be soaked in water with 10% lemon juice or they
can be cleaned with a non abrasive cleaner.
Cleaning the filter bowl surround,
juicer cover, food pusher, pulp
container
• Wash all parts in warm soapy water with a
soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
The filter bowl surround, juicing jug and lid, food
pusher and pulp container, are dishwasher safe
(top shelf only).
Always treat the filter basket with care as it can
be easily damaged.
The juice cover is not dishwasher safe.
The stainless steel filter basket is dishwasher
safe (top shelf only).
Cleaning the filter basket
• For consistent juicing results always
ensure that the stainless steel filter basket
is thoroughly cleaned using the supplied
cleaning brush.
• Soak the stainless steel filter basket in hot
soapy water for approximately 10 minutes
immediately after juicing is completed. If pulp
is left to dry on the filter it may clog the fine
pores of the filter mesh thereby lessening the
effectiveness of the juicer.
Cleaning the motor base
• Wipe the motor base with a soft, damp cloth
then dry thoroughly.
• Wipe any excess food particles from the
power cord.
14
Do not soak the stainless steel filter basket in
bleach or other abrasive cleansers.
• Using the cleaning brush, hold the filter basket
under running water and brush from the inside
of the basket to the outer rim. Avoid touching
the small sharp blades in the centre of the
filter basket. After cleaning the filter basket,
hold it up towards a light to ensure the fine
mesh holes are not blocked. If the holes are
blocked, soak the filter basket in hot water
with 10% lemon juice to loosen the blocked
holes. Alternatively, wash the filter basket in
the dishwasher.

The safety locking arm may not be correctly engaged in the vertical operating
position with the locking arm located into the two grooves on either side of the juicer
cover (page 8 step 5).
Motor appears
to stall when
juicing
Wet pulp can build up under the juicer cover if the juicing action is too vigorous. Try
slower juicing action by pushing the food pusher down more slowly (page 11 step 4).
Follow Disassembling and Cleaning instructions and clean the filter bowl surround,
the stainless steel filter basket and the juicer cover.
The Juice Fountain ™ Plus will automatically stop operating if the motor is stalled
for more than 10 seconds. Either too much food is being processed at one time or
the pieces are not small enough. Try trimming the food or cutting into smaller pieces
of even size and processing a smaller amount per batch. To continue juicing, reset
the Juice Fountain ™ Plus by pressing the ‘On/Off’ switch on the control panel back
to ‘Off’ then turn the appliance back on by pressing ‘On/Off’ switch to ‘On’.
Hard fruit and vegetables will put excess strain onto the motor if a low speed is
selected. Please refer to the juicing guide on Page 10 to determine the correct speed
for the fruit and vegetables selected for juicing.

Stop the juicing process and follow Disassembling instructions. Remove the juicer
cover, scrape off pulp, reassemble and begin juicing again. Try alternating (soft and
hard) vegetables and fruit varieties.
Try a slower juicing action. Remove the stainless steel filter basket and thoroughly
clean mesh walls with a cleaning brush. Rinse the filter basket under hot water. If
the fine mesh holes are blocked, soak the basket in a solution of hot water with 10%
lemon juice to unlock the holes or wash in the dishwasher. This will remove excess
fibre build up (from fruit and vegetables) which could be inhibiting the flow.

overload protection device and the unit will switch itself off. When the overload
protection is activated, unplug the Juicer from the power outlet for at least 15 minutes to allow the unit to cool. Then plug the juicer into the power outlet and use
as normal.
Tips on Juicing
The inside information on juicing
Preparation of fruit and vegetables
Although the juice drinks contained in this
booklet were developed with flavour, texture
and aroma at the forefront, the health benefits
certainly add to the pleasurable taste experience.
• If using fruits with hard or inedible skins such
as mangoes, guava, melons or pineapple,
always peel before juicing.
95% of the nutrient content of fruit and
vegetables is found in the juice. Liquids
extracted from fresh fruit and vegetables form
an important part of a well-balanced healthy
diet. Fresh fruit and vegetables juices are an
easy source of vitamins and minerals. Juices are
rapidly absorbed into the blood stream therefore
being the quickest way in which the body can
digest nutrients.
When you make your own fruit and vegetable
juices, you have complete control over what is
included. Select the ingredients and decide if you
need to add sugar, salt or other flavouring agents
after juicing. Freshly extracted juices should be
consumed immediately after they have been
processed to avoid a loss of vitamin content.
Purchasing and storage of fruit and
vegetables
• Always wash fruit and vegetables before
juicing.
• Always use fresh fruit and vegetables for
juicing.
• To save money and obtain fresher produce,
purchase fruit or vegetables that are in
season. Refer to the Fruit and Vegetable Facts
chart (page 19-20).
• Some vegetables, such as cucumbers
can be processed unpeeled depending on
the softness of the skin and the juicing
requirements.
• All fruits with large piths, hard seeds or stones such as nectarines, peaches, mangoes,
apricots, plums and cherries must be pitted
before juicing.
• Ensure vegetables such as beetroot, carrots,
etc. have all soil removed, are well washed
and trimmed of leaves before juicing.
• Ensure fruits such as strawberries are hulled
before juicing and pears have their stalks
removed.
• Citrus fruit can be juiced in the Juice Fountain™
Plus but remove the skin and excess pith before juicing.
• A small amount of lemon juice can be added
to apple juice to reduce discolouration.
Your Juice Fountain™ Plus makes invigorating,
frothy orange juice. Simply peel the oranges and
remove any excess pith before juicing. It is best
to refrigerate oranges before juicing.
• Keep your fruit and vegetables ready for
juicing by washing and drying them before
storing.
• Most fruits and hardier type vegetables can be
stored at room temperature. The more delicate
and perishable items such as tomatoes,
berries, leafy greens, celery, cucumbers and
herbs should be stored in the refrigerator until
required.

Tips on Juicing continued
Fruit and vegetable facts
The right technique
Using the pulp
When juicing a variety of ingredients with
varying textures, start with the softer texture
ingredients on low speed and then gradually
change to high speed for the harder textured
ingredients.
The remaining pulp left after juicing fruit and
vegetables is mostly fibre and cellulose which,
like the nutrients in juice, are necessary for
the daily diet and can be used in many ways.
However, like the juice, pulp should be used that
day to avoid loss of vitamins.
If you are juicing herbs, sprouts or other leafy
green vegetables, either wrap them together
to form a bundle or juice them in the middle of
a combination of ingredients on low speed to
obtain the best extraction.
If juicing herbs or leafy green vegetables on their
own, the juice yield will be low due to the nature
of centrifugal juicing. It is advised to juice them
with a combination of other fruit and vegetables.
All fruit and vegetables produce different
amounts of liquids. This varies within the same
group i.e. one batch of tomatoes can produce
more juice than another batch. Since juice
recipes are not exact, the precise quantities
of any juice are not crucial to the success of a
particular mixture.

When using the pulp, there may be some pieces
of fruit or vegetables remaining. These should be
removed before using the pulp in any recipes.
To extract the maximum amount of juice always
push the food pusher down slowly.
Getting the right blend
It is easy to create great tasting juice. If you
have been making your own vegetable or fruit
juices, then you know how simple it is to invent
new combinations. Taste, colour, texture and
ingredient preferences are a personal choice.
Think of some flavours and foods – would
they work well together or would they clash.
Some strong flavours could over power the
more subtle flavours of others. It is however, a
good rule to combine starchy, pulpy fruit and
vegetables with those high in moisture.
